BORDER COLLIE TRAINING THROUGHOUT YORKSHIRE
Because of their high intelligence, Border Collies are very strong-willed. It’s vital with Border Collie training to establish firm leadership over your dog from the beginning. Without training you will have to deal with problems such as biting, aggression and constant barking.
In 1873 the first sheepdog trials were held. The one that stood apart was named “Old Hemp.” Hemp was quiet, intelligent and herded through sheer presence and a long stare. He became the father of modern border collies and the standard which working collies aspire to even today.
THE BORDER COLLIE
BORDER COLLIE OBEDIENCE TRAINING
Obedience is vital in your Border Collie. At York Dog School we will train your dog to a high level in obedience.We also believe that this should involve the owner at every stage and so our training is one to one with you and your dog. It’s important that your dog obeys your commands and we work with you until you are confident in controlling your dog.
Owners with obedient pets get more satisfaction and have a stronger bond with their pet. As Border Collies were bred as working dogs owner training is vital so that the owner can enjoy having such an energetic and strong willed dog.
A well-trained Border Collie is safe to have around family and friends, and is at a lower risk than an uncontrolled dog.
- Heel Work – walk to heel on the lead
BORDER COLLIE PUPPY TRAINING
Training your new puppy should be started as soon as possible from 8 weeks. You’ll be amazed just how quickly they learn and at a very early age and it’s just fun for them and they love it!
York Dog Training School train your puppy on a 1-2-1 visit to your home in Yorkshire rather than in classes as we believe this is much more effective.
- Toilet Training - we will show you the easiest way to toilet train your puppy
- Crate Training - we will show you how to crate train your puppy
- Biting - we will show you how to stop "mouthing" or biting
- Destructive Behaviour - we will show you how to stop destructive behaviour
STOPPING BAD BEHAVIOUR BY YOUR COLLIE
Some trainers believe that giving a dog treats is the best way to train but in our opinion relying on treats exclusively just does not work particularly with a Border Collie. Your dog may learn how behave but only does it at because there's a treat at the end of it and many times treats just stop working. Essentially you are bribing the dog to behave properly. Our dog training solves problems with bad behaviour as this is our speciality. Many of the problems are very common and we work with your dog and just as importantly, with you at your home or on a walk, to solve any problems you may have.
- Stop pulling on the lead
- Stop lunging at other dogs
- Stop barking at dogs & people
- Stop jumping up at people
- Stop aggression
- Stop running away and not returning
- Stop constant barking
DOG BOOTCAMP - RESIDENTIAL TRAINING
In addition to 1-2-1 Home training , we offer Residential Boot Camp Training at the kennels in blocks of a week at a time or just 3 days.
Please call to discuss your dog and your training objectives.
Daily intensive training sessions will ensure that your dog’s obedience will improve with a tailored programme to your exact needs and resolve any particular problems you may be having
Owner training is a vital part of the process and working with the owner is a major part of the training. We work extensively with the owner at the kennels to make sure that they understand the commands and can take control of their dog following the training.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Just had first visit from Rob. Very positive outcome for our border collie Bobby. Would recommend him to anyone. Will be in touch for future visits. Lyn
Wow I must admit I was skeptical as to are they going to be able to help well within the first 10 minutes of Ruth taking our border collie on the lead I was blown away it was like watching a different dog being walked
Thanks Rob for working your magic on my 9wk old Border Collie. Not only have you taught us both some valuable skills you have also built her confidence. And all in just one session!!
We have a 10 month old border collie who I wanted to train in competitive obedience, however he'd picked up a few bad habits. Therefore I contacted Leeds Dog School and Rob came over to help. It was worth every penny and more, his understanding of dogs behaviour is incredible, and all the issues I had are completely gone. I would recommend Rob to anybody having issues with their dog!
Rob came to see my very headstrong 9 month old Border Collie today. The techniques he taught me to show my dog that I am the boss have already started to work he is a lot more well behaved and walks on the lead so much better. Rob is very knowledgeable, approachable and his experience with dogs really shows. I would 100% recommended Rob to anyone who really wants to understand their dog. I've tried a lot of trainers but Rob's techniques really get results.
